“Astrology is the complete repository of man’s psychological knowledge”

Carl Jung

Astrology, when studied from an esoteric, evolutionary and spiritual perspective, is an incredibly accurate and valuable tool that, when the teachings are personally applied, enables access to the subconscious and super- conscious mind. Our birth chart indicates our potential. It also provides accurate information as to the psychological lessons we have incarnated to identify and overcome.

Since 1987 Ashtara has used astrology as an accelerated learning tool to gain greater self-awareness. She realised that for things to change externally first she must change internally.

She learned to become aware of her self-destructive psychology and transform it. As her self-awareness increased she took personal responsibility for the way she creates her life.  She teaches her students to do the same.

Our old way of being no longer fulfils or enriches life. When it’s time for psychological and spiritual growth, challenging situations arise in our life. They provide the opportunity for us to learn about ourselves. This inner journey requires the development of self-awareness and the willingness to take personal responsibility for all we think, feel and create. This inner revolution occurs according to cosmic timing. It’s dependent upon the specific relationship of celestial bodies to each other, and the effect of their energetic force field on individuals, and the collective consciousness. Ageless Wisdom identifies and defines this cosmic system and provides information as to how best to manage it.

Ashtara began teaching her perspective on astrology in 1992. Since then she’s written many articles and books on the subject.

Her classes and workshops are enlightening, fun, purposeful and filled with insights. Each one is designed to assist students raise their levels of self-awareness.

To aid student’s personal and spiritual development Ashtara wrote three astrology books titled Your Recipe for Empowerment through Spiritual Astrology. These three books, Volumes One, Two and Three, guide students to work with their birth chart to gain greater self-awareness. These simply written books are accelerated learning tools. Students who cannot attend classes also regard them highly. They need to be studied and the teachings applied to daily life.  They contain valuable information; stories to demonstrate the written concepts, and exercises to help students integrate the teachings.

“I started studying your book and my chart in earnest a few days ago, and I just wanted to let you know that the effect has been immediate! I’ve barely started and yet I can feel movement already in my heart, mind and soul, beyond that which I have experienced before in my (this) life/spiritual journey and this is because of your guidance through your words and teaching.

I feel such a magnetic pull to your words and teachings that I can hardly describe, and I sincerely hope that I can continue my studies in spiritual astrology with you, as far as it will take me in this life.

Thank you, Ashtara, with much love.”

Belinda Burman

Some esoteric principles govern her understanding and are:

  • We humans are, in essence, divine
  • We are each a fragment of the Universal Mind, the Mind of God.
  • We have a lower and higher nature.
  • Our higher nature is that of spirit. When realization and acceptance of the magnificence of our higher nature occurs, life changes. We can no longer operate unconsciously, robotically replaying the same old fear-based psychological games. We begin to function as a soul.

Ashtara, Thank you for an up-close, personal and revealing journey through your classes.  I am eternally grateful”.


“What a fabulous workshop – thought it was perfectly presented in a fun way (Ashtara style) – a reminder that we often take life too seriously- absolutely loved your way of combining astrology with acting and a sense of humour – it really moved things along”

Nuria Breier

“Ashtara, thank you so much for yet another fabulous workshop. I came away with a much deeper understanding of how I can use astrology as a tool to deepen my self-awareness and to make the right choices to create health and harmony in my life. By the end of the day I felt very peaceful, joyful and energized!! Thank you!”

Jupiter in Gemini: Expansion of Knowledge and Truth (26 May 2024 - 10 June 2025) Jupiter is the largest planet in our solar system, often referred to esoterically as the home of the Spiritual Masters. Jupiter rules the sign of Sagittarius and the ninth house in the astrological birth chart model. Overseas travel  is a function of Jupiter, as are themes and issues connecting to foreigners, different cultures, prejudice, bigotry and righteousness. Righteousness can easily lead to judgement i.e.  believing you are right and judging others as wrong. When we judge, so will we be judged. It is the universal…

Pluto retrograde in Aquarius  - 1 May - 3 September 2024 Last week I wrote about the three symbols of Scorpio and the influence the meaning of these  symbols have on our lives.

First, let’s look at the esoteric symbol of Pluto. Above the Cross of Matter (a symbol for the earth plane)  is a half circle - (Crescent of the Soul ).  Within it sits the small…

A New Awakening Cycle Begins Remember the years 2000 and 2012? What was taking place globally and within your lives then? A new century, and two x 12 year cycles later, the planet of expansion and spiritual growth Jupiter, is aligning with Uranus, the planet of awakening.  “What is being awakened?” you may ask.  The diamond codes of liquid light within us, known also as the Christ/Magdalen codes, are slowly awakening to their purpose for being.  Will we consciously work with and integrate them to enable new thought and subsequent new harmonising experiences? These codes contain our soul’s wisdom and…

Rumi (13th Century poet, Islamic scholar and Sufi mystic) These wise words of a most revered poet are particularly applicable to our personal lives and to that of Mother Earth - Gaia, the Greek name given to the spiritual energy of Earth who has gone through tremendous pain, angst and hurt as a result of human destruction and rape of her resources.  Wars will continue to be fought in those countries where old wounds…

Neptune is nearing the final degrees of Pisces but doesn’t move into…

The New/Second Earth Today, I’d like you to take you on a short journey of approximately 28 years by returning to Christmas 1996.  As a Christmas present I received a painting done by my then four and half year old granddaughter, Natalie. It is one of my most treasured possessions because it is so meaningful. The painting is of 3 spheres or balls, two of them blue and green and the other bright yellow.  One blue/green ball is much larger than the other. There are many bright pink trees, hugs and kisses painted underneath the larger blue/green sphere. I asked…

Creating Beneficial Group Energy The theme of this article came to me when relaxing after a busy week of group interactions. It is a theme that will spread, culminating in greater awareness in April this year when two of the transiting planets, Jupiter and Uranus, align through a conjunction. Jupiter is the planet that brings expansive and beneficial spiritual growth, often through heart-felt spiritual group interactions. Uranus brings illumination, especially when groups are engaged in futuristic work for the greater good of all. At this time in our human evolution of consciousness, many people are becoming more sensitive to the…

Evolutionary Choices We humans we granted free will to live our lives as we choose, taking into consideration the Universal Law of Cause and Effect. Whatever we cause creates a ripple. Whether the pond is small or large is of no matter. The ripple expands and keeps on expanding until it reaches land. So it is for whatever we cause. We can rise above this evolutionary necessity once we have consciously, with awareness, made necessary corrections.  Sincere heart-felt daily forgiveness based on love,  assists the process. Forgiveness of self for having caused/attracted the problem or issue in the first place,…

Wisdom of the Ancients Around six thousand years ago astronomy was known to many people. The Sumerians studied the stars to learn of their energetic influences relative to the  land and its inhabitants. They carved information on to stone monuments, copper sheets and papyrus scrolls. Some of this valuable information has been discovered and interpreted by scholars familiar with the languages of the time. In the ruins of Sumerian cities excavated by archaeologists in the last century were found  thousands of texts and illustrations that dealt with astronomy, creation and evolution. Scholars have been able to interpret many of them.…
